Default Battery case

Does anyone make a hard case for lipos? I have a 6s I am going to split up for a car and would like it to be protected.

Not exactly sure what you are looking for, but Corally makes a really nice Lipo/motor case that is fairly compact.

Hard cases/replacement cases for cracked or damaged batteries?

I'd like that answer too!

I have 2 that haven't puffed, been over discharged or improperly charged myself. I used strapping tape on the old cases and it works, but its not the solution I'd like. One cracked when it was dropped, the other need the wires replaced due the the shielding being nicked. Both bats still work just fine.

I think some of us have a cracked battery somewhere that we're not sure is truly safe any longer. That is my biggest concern.

Happened to me 1 time...set the charger on NIMH charging...1/2 hour later I have a big ballooned lipo....

In your case...I would not want to deal with that battery anymore. I have seen lipo on poof in action....NOT PRETTY, not to mention, your friend with HATE you, and your club/track will NOT let you get back once you have an incident with lipo failure. Not worth it.

I'm lucky so far. The one was opened by me to repair wires the other my son dropped. No ballooning. Otherwise I'd toss them (dispose of them properly).
